I really like to read books by Marion Zimmer Bradley, I just generally like her writing style and her ideas. I especially like her re-tellings of well-known myths from a female point of view and so I re-read Die Feuer von Troja (The Firebrand) again.

As I said, I like the female point of view and was surprised how some of her ideas on characters matched mine after I had read the "Illias" myself. One of them was that Achilleus has never been the glorious hero to me but a powerful, spoilt and cruel kid. I later found another author (Christa Wolf) that even got as far as calling him "Achill the Beast". And I like the twist of MZB that Kassandra isn't killed in the end but does find some kind of happiness.
